Council gets it right

We applaud our City Counciil’s continuing pursuit of acquiring the water system that serves Claremont.

As residents since 1957, including owning a home for more than a decade, we have been customers of Golden State Water Company. Golden State provides a fine example of why distribution of natural resources should not be part of profit-controlled business in private ownership.

As we all experience the cataclysmic proportions of climate change, it has become a worldwide concern. Let Claremont be a leader and continue the quest for public control.
